Craft Corner: Make a Memory Jar to Document the Upcoming New Year

🎊 Cool Craft to Celebrate the New Year

December 18, 2019

There's nothing like the start of a new year to remind us how quickly time flies! It's easy to look back on years past and remember the big milestones ... major holidays spent with family, big trips and vacations, a piano recital.

But what about all the wonderful special "little" moments you share each day?

This year, document the everyday experiences that make your life unique by creating a memory jar. Decorate a jar or vase, then drop pieces of paper documenting the special moments, memories, experiences, and laughs as they happen through the year. Next New Year's Eve, read each piece of paper and celebrate all the special moments.

It's never too late to start this tradition with your family. Save the memory jars from years past for a creative way to archive your family's history. Or make a jar for each child and drop in their favorite experiences to read through on their birthday each year.  

It's a special way to remember all the moments — big and small — that you share as a family.
